I Shall Seal the Heavens - chapter-911
When four hundred apprentice alchemists all challenged the Medicine
Pavilion together, and over a hundred succeeded, the news didn’t cause
a huge stir in the inner mountains, but in the outer mountains, a tempest
To any apprentice alchemist, passing the first level of the Medicine
Pavilion was a major step in life, and something incredibly important.
That was even more so for those who had been studying for dozens or even
more than a hundred years, and yet still could not pass. They were on the
verge of going crazy.
Then there were the apprentice alchemists who hadn’t been studying for
very long. When they saw others who had been studying for a similar
period of time suddenly succeed, and not because they were naturally
gifted, but rather, because they had studied with Fang Hao, and listened
to his lectures, it is easy to imagine how violent of an uproar it caused.
Even more so, the apprentice alchemists who had chosen not to pay merit
points to listen to Meng Hao felt intense regret, and couldn’t help but
think about how a few hundred merit points over the course of three
months could have gotten them past the first level of the Medicine
Pavilion. Then they would have been pre-qualified to become tier 1
alchemists, which could not be bought with merit points, no matter how
many they offered to pay.
Meng Hao didn’t make an appearance for three days. In the meantime, the
storm among the outer mountain apprentice alchemists continued. Tens of
thousands had gathered outside of Peak #7191 to wait for Meng Hao. Some
people even got into magical combat in order to get a good seat.
On dawn of the fourth day, Meng Hao appeared in the Dao of Alchemy
Division. A soon as people spotted him, word spread like wildfire.
Meng Hao was quite pleased about all this. Murmuring to himself about how
his methods really were effective, he eventually reached Peak #7191. When
he saw how many people were waiting, he immediately got excited.
“There have to be about 40-50,000 people here,” he thought, panting.
“At one merit point a piece for a two hour lecture, I would get around
50,000 merit points! If I lecture for four hours, it would be 100,000. If
I lectured for eight hours, 200,000!!” Eventually, he took a deep
breath. Smiling the whole way, looking like a preeminent Daoist master
who viewed material wealth as filth, he slowly strode forward.
When all of the apprentice alchemists gathered around the mountain saw
him, they clasped hands and bowed. Then, they joined voices in greeting.
“Greetings, Professor Fang!”

The combined voices of all the apprentice alchemists echoed out like
thunder. Meng Hao stepped foot onto the platform, looked out at the
audience with shining eyes, and then cleared his throat.
“Today, I will lecture for eight hours,” he said.
Immediately, Fang Xi flew out of the crowd with a jade slip in hand, and
called out, “Professor Fang is kind and generous. To him, material
wealth means nothing. In previous months, we had to force him to accept
our payment. Now, because he cannot bear to watch the clan’s apprentice
alchemists fail the examination of the Medicine Pavilion, he has come
here to lecture about plants and vegetation. We can’t let him down!
“Come come. Everyone put some merit points into this jade slip. Even if
Professor Fang doesn’t want it, we’ll force him to take it!” At the
same time that Fang Xi yelled out these words, a group of several hundred
apprentice alchemists flew out from the crowd in various areas, jade
slips in the hand. They immediately began to accept merit points from the
other apprentice alchemists in their area.
This time, not a single one of the 40-50,000 people departed. All of them
paid their merit points, and then the several hundred jade slips were
placed in front of Meng Hao.
Meng Hao’s face darkened.
“What do you people think you’re doing!?” he snapped, flicking his
sleeve and looked very displeased.
Yet again, Fang Xi took the lead in crying out.
“Professor Fang, this is only what should be yours by right. Sir,
please accept!” When Fang Xi finished speaking, his hundreds of
companions began to shout.
“Accept it, Professor Fang. If you don’t, we’ll be very upset!”

After listening for a moment, Meng Hao hesitated, then let out a long
sigh and collected up the jade slips.
“Very well,” he said emotionally. “Since you demand it, all I can
do is work as hard as possible to help you pass the examination of the
“Material wealth is nothing,” he said, shaking his head. “What I
care least about in life is just that, money.” Inwardly, of course, he
was extremely excited and was shouting about how he was rich now.
The eight hour lecture ended quickly. Meng Hao again talked about the key
medicinal plants from the medicine pavilion. After a while, he would wave
his hand, causing a thousand medicinal plants to appear, just like the
examination in the Medicine Pavilion. Many of the apprentice alchemists
who were experiencing this for the first time were instantly enlivened.
In the following days, Meng Hao was engrossed in lecturing about plants
and vegetation. He lectured for eight hours a day, and as time
progressed, more and more people came to listen, until the audience
The area was packed full of people, and no end could be seen to the
massive crowds. This only spurred Meng Hao on to put even more energy
into his lectures. He even employed his cultivation base and some divine
abilities to broadcast his voice out into the distance so that every
person could hear him
He was now making hundreds of thousands of merit points every day. To
Meng Hao, that income was a powerful motivating force. Eventually, his
lectures became the center of attention of all the outer mountains.
As Meng Hao got more and more merit points, he was able to get more and
more valuable medicinal plants. As such, the ingredients he needed for
the Spirit Elixir were all replaced by what could be considered treasured
items. Soon, the efficacy of the Spirit Elixir reached a terrifying level.
As for the leftover merit points, he would acquire other medicinal
plants, which he would take to his Immortal’s cave to concoct medicinal
pills. This enabled his Dao of alchemy to steadily improve with each
He would also exchange merit points for spirit stones, which he would use
to duplicate the Spirit Elixir. The life force in the Nirvana Fruits
continued to grow stronger.

Of course, not a few people saw what was happening, and their eyes went
bloodshot. The other alchemists gazed over at Meng Hao like ravenous
wolves. Although they had never thought to use a method like his, when
they saw how much he was profiting, many of them began to imitate him.
There were even tier 5 alchemists who left the inner mountains and began
to lecture about plants and vegetation, all in order to earn merit points.
Because the Alchemist Council didn’t oppose what was happening, it
meant they tacitly approved. In fact, they were happy that more
alchemists were opting not to spend all their time concocting pills, but
instead, were going to the outer mountains to speak to the apprentice
alchemists about plants and vegetation, as well as the Dao of alchemy.
It was as if the entire Dao of Alchemy Division was invigorated, and now
bustled with activity. Things were very different than before. Now that
more alchemists were coming out of the inner mountains and charging to
give lectures, some of Meng Hao’s audience was being drawn away.
However, there were a million apprentice alchemists in the Dao of Alchemy
Division, so even if a few left, others would take their place. The Dao
of Alchemy became a place where numerous viewpoints and expressions were
now being heard, and everyone was struggling to promote their own
Alchemists began using all sorts of methods to attract more apprentice
alchemists to their lectures. Some would even lecture about their top
secret methods. Gradually, because they were able to attract more and
more attention, everyone was able to make a handsome profit.
Soon, tier 6 alchemists and even some tier 7 alchemists were moved to the
point of emerging from the inner mountains. The atmosphere in the Dao of
Alchemy Division had reached a peak, and even the main clan was was
affected, and the Grand Elder, shocked, made a personal visit.
That event caused quite a stir, and word soon spread throughout the clan.
As the apprentice alchemists began to run low on merit points, they chose
to perform service for the sect, all to get more merit points. People
even began to compete over the tasks assigned by the Dao of Alchemy
Division. Everything was flourishing.
“What a change in the Dao of Alchemy Division!” Even the nineteen
tier 8 alchemists were very excited. They watched the developments in the
atmosphere in the Dao of Alchemy Division, and could tell that if things
kept going on this way, the Dao of Alchemy Division would definitely
experience a great rise, and a new generation of alchemists would soon
All of it started with Meng Hao, and because of it, everyone was once
again speaking his name!
Back in the ancestral mansion, the Grand Elder sat silently in the
temple, his face dark. It had already been several months since he gave
Meng Hao the Nirvana Fruits, and there had been plenty of time for him to
concoct whatever type of Spirit Elixir he wanted. And yet, Meng Hao had
not suddenly died. By this point, the Grand Elder was starting to put the

“I underestimated him,” he thought with a sigh. “He must have
detected something somehow. What a pity…. In any clan, clan rules are
everything. All clan members must respect the clan rules. As for
him….” The Grand Elder shook his head, and within his eyes could be
seen a glint of killing intent.
In another temple in the ancestral mansion, Fang Xiushan and his father
sat there, extremely grim faced because of the huge name Meng Hao was
making for himself.
“That damned son of a bitch!” grumbled Fang Xiushan, frowned. “He
actually thought up a scheme like this to earn large amounts of merit
points!! The amount he’s earning on a daily basis is enough to cause
even my eyes to turn red…. With things like this, it’s going to be
impossible to constrain his development.” He looked over at his father.
The old man opened his eyes, and a cold glimmer could be seen within.
“What are you losing your head over?” he said coolly. “He’s just
a child. The only reason he came up with this method was because someone
from the direct bloodline is coaching him. Even still, it doesn’t
“I have my methods to cut off his source of merit points!” With that,
he produced a jade slip, imprinted it with some divine sense, and then
flung it out the door.
“Just wait and see,” he said, closing his eyes once again.
As Meng Hao rose to prominence, Fang Donghan, who was a member of one of
the neutral bloodlines in the clan, was watching. From the very
beginning, he had been paying attention to Meng Hao and Fang Wei, and now
that he saw Meng Hao becoming famous in the Dao of Alchemy Division, his
sense of anticipation was growing. 1
“It won’t be long now before he and Fang Wei fight each other!” he
thought. He took a deep breath and then smiled.
In the ancestral mansion, in the subterranean Immortal’s cave, Fang Wei
sat cross-legged in meditation. Yet again, there were nine old men
surrounding him, who trembled as their Immortal qi was absorbed by Fang

Fang Yunyi kneeled in front of him respectfully, eyes shining with zeal
as he looked at Fang Wei.
A moment later, Fang Wei opened his eyes and finished his session of
cultivation. Of the surrounding nine old men, three of them coughed up
blood, and then their bodies rapidly withered away until they were
“What’s the matter, Yunyi?” Fang Wei asked coolly.
“Cousin,” replied Fang Yunyi, “your Cultivation base is incredible.
You’re just a step away from the Immortal Realm. When you finally
become Immortal, you’ll be able to sweep across all of the Chosen of
the Ninth Mountain and Sea!”
Fang Wei’s expression was the same as ever, and he didn’t respond. He
just looked at Fang Yunyi.
“Cousin,” continued Fang Yunyi, “do you remember Fang Hao? He’s
that bastard who was disrespectful to you in the temple a while back. You
are generous and open-minded, and would never sink yourself to his level,
but he’s not like that. He is narrow and petty-minded, and already
views you as a thorn in his side.
“Recently, he’s been using despicable methods to make a name for
himself in the Dao of Alchemy Division, and he’s even started spreading
harmful gossip about you. Cousin, he’s tarnishing your name, which
really makes me mad. Unfortunately, I can’t beat him. I can only watch
as he rises to prominence in the Dao of Alchemy Division.” Fang Yunyi
Fang Wei’s expression was the same as usual. He seemed neither joyful
nor angry. He looked calmly at Fang Yunyi, as if he could see all the way
through him, as if he could tell exactly how much of what he had just
said was true or false.
Seeing that Fang Wei was studying him, Fang Yunyi suddenly began to
tremble in fear. He had no idea what Fang Wei was thinking, so he
didn’t dare to say anything further. He was just considering leaving,
when Fang Wei finally spoke.
“Tell me about it.”

Fang Yunyi was immediately enlivened, and began to explain in detail
everything Meng Hao had done in the Dao of Alchemy Division.
After listening to everything, Fang Wei closed his eyes for a few
moments. Then he opened them and coolly said, “There are a lot of
people in the world who like to get things for free. When you have the
option of getting something for free, or paying, most people will opt for
the first. Fang Yunyi, do you get my meaning?”
Fang Yunyi gaped. After a moment of thought, his eyes grew bright, and he
rose excitedly to his feet, laughing.
